  • Bill Maher says he now regrets Trump's impeachment: 'It just emboldened him'

    "Real Time" host Bill Maher looked back with apparent regret Friday night on the Democratic-led impeachment of President Trump, saying it "turned out to be a horrible thing." During a conversation with liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, Maher pointed to Trump's recent firings of inspectors general, most recently the ousting of State Department watchdog Steve Linick, and complained the firings got very little media attention amid the coronavirus pandemic. Moore then pivoted the conversation to the Russia investigation -- claiming Trump "bullied" former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and insisting Mueller "got scared" and refused to interrogate the president.
  • Federal Criminal Offenses and the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump

    This collection of leading legal experts discusses a range of federal crimes that apply to the conduct of President Donald Trump, based on the evidence produced by the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry. These crimes include all of the federal offences listed in the Chapter headings, except for Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. In that Chapter, the author concludes that the impeachment inquiry did not examine the relevant evidence for one of the elements of the crime, although a lot of that evidence has arisen in investigative reports by journalists. The final Chapter includes an important federal law that does not...
  • Ingraham Uncovers Emails Showing Obama WH’s Burisma Meeting With Ukrainians Over Payments To Hunter Biden – Link To Whistleblower Found

    During a recent edition of the Ingraham Angle, Laura Ingraham announced said she was in possession of State Department emails from May 1, 2019 showing that New York Times reporter Ken Vogel inquired about a 2016 Obama White House meeting with Ukrainian prosecutors. That meeting took place at the White House the day before President-elect Trump’s inauguration. At least seven Ukrainians were registered as visitors that day. According to Ingraham, the person who checked them into the White House that day was the person who later became the whistleblower that kicked off the sham impeachment we’re laboring through right now....
  • The Perpetual Impeachment: House Democrats Tell The Supreme Court That They Are Preparing For A New Impeachment

    On Monday, the House Democrats filed a brief that with the Supreme Court that the House was actively pursuing new articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump including “the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel.” The argument is meant to justify the continued demand for redacted grand-jury material from the now closed Special Counsel investigation into the Russian collusion investigation. I have long supported the congressional demands for documents withheld by the Trump Administration as well as witnesses, including in my testimony...

  • Trump called it right, firing Marie Yovanovitch -- whom we now learn was lying through her teeth

    The highly vaunted Trump-hating U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, has been caught lying through her teeth, under oath, to Congress. John Solomon, who conducted a Freedom of Information Act query, has the goods: During her testimony, the ambassador told lawmakers her knowledge about Burisma and its relationship with Hunter Biden was limited mostly to a briefing before she went to Kiev as the top U.S. diplomat and what she read in news reports. Newly released memos state Yovanovitch had a direct meeting with a Burisma representative in December 2016, and received a detailed letter from the company's lawyer. It's...

    Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress that her knowledge about corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and Hunter Biden's lucrative position on the board came only from what she read in press reports and a briefing she received by the Obama State Department ahead of her Senate confirmation hearing. But newly uncovered documents show the former ambassador's knowledge of the two subjects was much greater than she told Congress under oath. Citizens United obtained State Department emails this week showing former Ambassador Yovanovitch was involved in discussions regarding Burisma and even attended a meeting with representatives of...

    I started reading through and or skimming the tranche of released transcripts of testimony that has been hidden from view for far too long yesterday and found myself on the second Bannon interview. These are in alphabetical order with dates also listed oddly, so you need to pay attention when a witness testimony spans two days, such as Bannon’s, as it can be confusing when reading. Bannon’s has the two days with the second day listed first. I had read beyond Bannon when I realized there was a transcript missing. The transcript for Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson is...

    Today the republican majority is not judging the President Clinton with fairness, but impeaching him with the vengeance. In the investigation of the President, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear, privacy, fairness, checks and balances have been seriously violated. And why? As we are here today, because the republicans in the House [of Representatives] are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton. And until the republicans free themselves of this hatred our country will suffer. I rise to oppose these unfair motions, which call for removal of the President of the United States from office, and in doing so wish to...

    A call by former President George W. Bush for humanity to jettison partisanship amid the Chinese coronavirus pandemic has drawn a sharp rebuke from President Donald Trump. Bush published a video message on Saturday urging unity and togetherness amid the coronavirus’ outbreak, which received 4.4 million views on Twitter as of Sunday morning. Bush’s plea amounted to a call for people to ignore partisanship to protect the most vulnerable and to assist those who have become unemployed. (snip) The president’s (Trump's) response was straight to the point, outlining Bush’s absence when Trump was being excoriated during his impeachment proceedings. “.@PeteHegseth...

    This Video is a lot of FUN. Former democrat who left the party uses a time line to compare what Trump did verses what Pelosi did. Guess who comes out shining like a rose? She has a knack for this. She is not boring in the least. It gets better and better as the video goes on. The only comment I don't agree with is her comment about Obama near the end. But considering how much she gets right then I can forgive her. Enjoy

    Paul told Politico, "It is a chilling and disturbing day in America when giant web companies such as YouTube decide to censure speech. Now, even protected speech, such as that of a senator on the Senate floor, can be blocked from getting to the American people. This is dangerous and politically biased. Nowhere in my speech did I accuse anyone of being a whistleblower, nor do I know the whistleblower’s identity." YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi said, "Videos, comments, and other forms of content that mention the leaked whistleblower’s name violate YouTube’s Community Guidelines and will be removed from YouTube.

    President Trump is reportedly about to clean house at the inspector general level. After defeating the Democratic Party’s shoddy impeachment push in February, it was clear that the administration needed to take a more aggressive approach in removing Obama-era inspector generals who the administration think is just acting as another arm in the deep state war against the Trump White House. They’re not wrong. Susan Crabtree at RealClearPolitics wrote that this is going to happen soon. It’s already begun, with Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community, being given his pink slip last Friday evening. Atkinson was a...

    Here are the details you need to know to fully understand why President Trump lost confidence in Inspector General Michael Atkinson and exercised his presidential prerogative to replace him. On Saturday, reporters queried President Trump about his Friday firing of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. TrumpÂ’s response seemingly confirmed the left-leaning press and DemocratsÂ’s narrative that the firing was retaliation for the IG informing the House Intelligence Committee of a whistleblowerÂ’s complaint. That complaint concerned TrumpÂ’s conversation with the Ukrainian president that set in motion TrumpÂ’s impeachment.But what the media and TrumpÂ’s political opponents wonÂ’t tell you is that...

    This week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced the creation of the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif), leader of this year's unsuccessful attempt to remove Trump from office via impeachment, is expected to head up this ad hoc committee. President Trump has questioned the timing of this announcement and suggested that "we win the war against this virus rather than wasting precious time and scarce resources trying to allocate blame now. After we've won this war we can assess what went wrong and what went right so we can be better...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), perhaps the central figure in Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump, began circulating draft legislation to investigate Trump's response to the coronavirus. In his press release on Friday, Schiff claimed the investigation is "not an exercise in casting blame or scoring political points," but Republicans are naturally skeptical. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a new coronavirus oversight committee, headed by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who last month said the pandemic gives Democrats "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." After all, Democrats stalled the $2 trillion stimulus bill...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial distracted the federal government from the novel coronavirus as it reached the United States in January, despite warnings at the time from public health experts and members of Congress about the spread of the virus. McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that the deadly virus “came up while we were tied down on the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment.″ […] McConnell said Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas...
